Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge!! NEWS!!! SWEET STUFF!!!


Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you have had a delightful weekend and are looking forward to a marvelous week!

Today is the very first challenge for the New Year at Wild Orchid Challenge Blog and we were treated to a really fun and exciting sketch by the inimitable and magnificently talented and creative Bev Rochester of All The Things I Love. Thanks so much, Bev, for the fun!! We would love for you to come join in with us for this challenge using the sketch. A fabulous prize, as always, is being offered by Wild Orchid Crafts.

...Oh my goodness...check out these new products available at Wild Orchid Crafts now!!! The Hip Rosebuds are so beautiful....and check out those marvelous Self Adhesive Rhinestones!!! Woooohooooo!!!!!


For my card, I used Bazzill for the base, the matting is all PTI, and the DP is from the MME Tickled Pink Collection. Oh I love those cheerful colors!!! All major panels were machine stitched. The image and sentiment are from the Lili of the Valley Set 3-Occasions stamp sheet. The image was colored with Copics and Glossy accents were added to the little bottle and the medicine in the spoon. Aw, isn't that little bear the cutest little thing???? For the vertical I used a light blue grosgrain ribbon and topped it with PTI Hibiscus Burst Satin ribbon, adding a flat bow to the bottom. For the floral treatment I used all flowers and pins from Wild Orchid Crafts: 25mm Open Roses, Cherry Blossom Stem Flowers, Gypsophilia, and Pearl Heart Shaped Pins. To complete the front I used Pink Rhinestones to soften the corners. The image panel and the sentiment panel were both propped up for dimension.

For the inside I used the same papers and same ribbon treatment as on the front...adding a sun charm dangle and triple Nesties for the jotting spot.


And now for my NEWS!!!! NEWS!!!! NEWS!!!!....Can you tell that I am so excited I just don't know what to do!!!! I have been invited to join the Lili of the Valley Store Design Team!!! I still can't believe that I was selected but I sure am over the moon that I was!!!! This company is genuinely phenomenal with its absolutely precious images and its big plans for the upcoming year! I can hardly wait!!!! The shop will re-open on January 4(TOMORROW) and the BIG NEW RELEASE will be NEXT TUESDAY, on January 11....Oh my goodness!!! You won't believe how precious the new collection is!!!

SWEET STUFF...so to help me celebrate my exciting news about Lili of the Valley Design Team, I would like to offer my followers a touch of SWEET STUFF!!!!! Just be sure you are a follower and show the SWEET STUFF on your sidebar....and don't forget that the LOTV shop opens on January 4 and the new releases will be available for purchase on January 11. This SWEET STUFF will run until Sunday, January 9 at midnight EST.

Traci S. said...

Dear Jacque~

I am having so much fun going back and getting to know you, your blog, and your art. I love this card. First of all, I am excited to meet someone else who will decorate the inside of a card. Secondly, I'll mention the little thing...getting the Glossy Accents on the medicine bottle and spoon must have been a real trick! I love the use of colors you chose for this card. When you add the beautiful flowers on the face of the card...it really completes it!

OH! Forgive me! Congratulations on being accepted to join the DT!!! I was wondering if a person must have a Magnolia stamp, or Wild Orchid Products to be able to enter their challenges. I am not in a position where I can buy new products to enter challenges. I guess I will continue to enter your amazing give-aways, and hopefully win a stamp or product that I can use to enter a challenge if needed.

Congratulations again!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
